ABOUT MONTANA RECORDING STUDIO

UP FOR A ROAD TRIP?

Many artists have chosen to turn their recording session into a road trip.  Missoula, Montana is an 18 hour drive from LA through some of the country’s most scenic highways.  How about a mini tour?  Another option is to book some shows en route to help get the band warmed up and make some extra cash.  Las Vegas, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Portland and Seattle are all potential stops along the way.

--------------

There is a reason the Rolling Stones went off to France, Paul McCartney to Nigeria and Led Zeppelin to Montreaux to make records.  While living the city can be great for inspiration and motivation, it can also be  distracting, especially during the recording process.  Missoula, Montana is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  Looking out over the Sapphire Range Mountains in between takes has a rejuvenating effect and allows for a much deeper level of focus and creativity.  Traveling to another state to make a record also adds to the band’s story and gives your audience another opportunity to connect with you through unique content as you document the process of traveling and recording.
